    Determining the Correct Equation for the Decomposition of Copper Carbonate Introduction and background information: Important points to note: ‘At room temperature, 25°C and atmospheric pressure at 1 atmosphere, I mole of any gas will occupy a volume of 24 dm³.’ We will need this to work out how much copper carbonate to decompose to obtain a sufficient amount of carbon dioxide gas. To work out the amount of copper carbonate to use I will need to use the following equations: Number of

  • Change of Sign Method - Mathematical Essay

    3557 Words  | 8 Pages

    Mathematical Essay In order to find the roots of an equation that cannot be solved algebraically, I can use numerical methods to do this instead. One of these methods is the change of sign method. From looking at a graph of my equation I can find two integers that my root lies between, then from there, using spreadsheets, I can use the change of sign method to discover where the root lies to five decimal places. I have chosen to try to solve the equation: 5x3-7x+1=0 First, I drew the graph of y=5x3-7x+1

    numbers, square the middle and multiply the outer two, the squared number will always be one more than the product of the outer two. If this rule is correct, then by using the three consecutive numbers: 101,102,103, I predict that 102² will equal one more than 101x103. 101,102,103 102²=10404 101x103= 10403 My prediction was correct as 102², 10404, is one more than 101x103, 10403.

  • The Open Box Problem

    can calculate the side lengths minus the cut out squares using the following equation. Volume = Length - (2 * Cut Out) * Width - (2 * Cut Out) * Height Using a square, both the length & the width are equal. I am using a length/width of 10cm. I am going to call the cut out "x." Therefore the equation can be changed to: Volume = 10 - (2x) * 10 - (2x) * x If I were using a cut out of length 1cm, the equation for this would be as follows: Volume = 10 - (2 * 1) * 10 - *(2 * 1) * 1

    T: [IMAGE] T-Total = 4 + 5 + 6 + 14 + 23 = 52 [IMAGE] This number should = 5n - 63 T-Total = 5n - 63 = (5 x 23) - 63 = 115 - 63 = 52 We can see that the two T-Totals (shortened to TT's) are equal. I shall next test this equation on a 10 x 10 graph to see if it works. [IMAGE] TT = 1 + 2 + 3 + 12 + 22 = 39 & TT = 5n - 63 = (5 x 22) - 63 = 110 - 63

    because the number has number has to be able to be added to 9 without a repeated number and it has to be added to all other numbers without crossing the “15” limit. The number 7 could not be placed in the middle cell because you can only get 3 equations that equal 15 using 7. The problem here is that you need at least 4 solutions: 2 diagonally, 1 horizontally and 1 vertically. The same counts for all other numbers except for 5. Therefore, the number that should be in the center cell is 5.

Sherman Dorn, a teacher, has an article on the Internet called “Copying is necessary to survival in school”[2], and it talks about how students at a young age are taught that only the completely correct answer will work on a test, when the right answer is exactly what the teacher is telling them in class. Hmmm, is that an early

Later on in this investigation T will be substituted for Q (squares) and H (hexagons) used to make a shape. Other letters used in my formulas and equations are X (T, Q or H), and Y (the number of sides a shape has). I have decided not to use S for squares, as it is possible it could be mistaken for 5, when put into a formula. After this, I will try to find a formula that links the number of shapes

    Bernoulli’s Equation. The Bernoulli equation states that, [IMAGE] but only when · point 1 and 2 lie on a streamline, · the fluid has a constant density, · the flow is steady · there is no friction. Although these restrictions sound severe, the Bernoulli equation is very useful, partly because it is very simple to use and partly because it can give great insight into the balance between pressure, velocity and elevation. Bernoulli's equation is the explanation

  • Magnetic Fields of Stationary Magnets

    Missing figures/equations My goal in writing this paper is two fold. Goal one is to try and understand how a stationary magnet exerts force by means of a magnetic field (even across a complete vacuum). Frequently, electromagnetic fields are compared to the gravitational field. Goal two is to explore the similarities between the two types of fields to see if comparison throws any light on the mechanism of magnetic field generation. The term action-at-a-distance is often used to describe forces
